    1971 Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl VI Championship Ring Presented to Punter Ron Widby.
    The twelfth time was a charm for this Lone Star State crew, which finally planted its flag atop the NFL mountain at the completion of a dozen seasons of existence. Though the Cowboys had been the dominant force in the NFC East for six years as they entered Super Bowl VI, they had yet to shake the perception as a team that couldn't win the big game, a widespread impression only hardened by their error-plagued loss to the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl V. But their twenty-four to three domination of the Dolphins in New Orleans proved the doubters wrong, a victory that appears all the more impressive when considering it was Miami's final loss before posting the NFL's only perfect season in 1972.
    Presented is the ring awarded to Cowboys punter Ron Widby, who ranked third in the NFL in 1971 with a 41.6-yard average and became the second Cowboys punter to earn a Pro Bowl berth that year. Widby would punt five times in the Super Bowl, averaging 37.2 yards with a long of 47 yards.

    Identical in design to those awarded to Roger Staubach, Rayfield Wright and the members of the fabled "Doomsday Defense," the gorgeous ring on offer features a diamond-studded face and the logo blue star at center, encircled by raised text announcing "Dallas Cowboys, World Champions." Left shank provides a Cowboys helmet in miniature framed by "R. Widby" and his jersey number "10." The Lombardi Trophy and NFL logo joins text reading "1971, Super Bowl" on right shank.

    Interior band is stamped "Balfour 14K," and measures to a size eleven(11). Weight is thirty-four grams (34 g.). Fine condition with minimal signs of wear.
